Each year since 1973, the Sloan Public Service Awards have recognized six outstanding civil servants out of the hundreds of thousands who work for New York City government. The Fund for the City of New York manages the nomination and selection process and refers to the awards as “the Nobel Prizes of Government…, the highest award that can be bestowed upon a New York City public servant.” Nominated by their colleagues and selected by a blue-ribbon panel of distinguished New Yorkers, each of the six winners receives a $10,000 cash prize and is honored at individual celebrations at their workplaces and at a citywide celebration at the Cooper Union. This grant continues the Foundation’s long support of the Sloan Public Service Awards with funding for an additional three years.
